in the transition to democracy, i am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace in our world. host: in "the herald," they put it this way -- host: dallas, texas. bob, independent line. caller: i am more of a liberal, but i applied my beliefs liberally to all issues. when the iranian president speaks about eliminating or wiping israel off the map, we must remember that one country was eliminated, wiped out, and that was palestine. no one speaks to that. he does not speak about annihilating. and i hate to defend him. he is all the things i find abhorrent as a liberal, but this year, we try to demonize this person when the issue is israel, a theocracy in the middle east that eliminated another country off the map, palestine. it is only for people within the same religion. it is ridiculous. and his support comes from, you know, the same people who support that right here in america. thank you. host: carol, california. what is the name of your town? go

get the government out of the subsidies by. explain at that to me and how big of an impact would that make? >>uge impact. this is seat of the pants estimate between the tax subsidies and direct grants and subsidies we make to schemes like soldra, totally that is about one-third of federal spending right there. that is not only money that being wasted, it is diverting capital from its highest and best use, to the whims of politicians. melissa: yeah. >> when you divert investment decisions from investors that make those decisions based upon the best economic return for the dollar and give those decisions instead to politicians, they make those decisions based on the highest political return for th dollar. that's a very different thing. melissa: your number two on the list i like very much. it is enact losers pay. basically lawyers have a huge influence on the political system. and we're seeing this right now with consumer protection. if you enact a rule for lawsuits that the loser has to pay the cost, that would make a huge difference. >> i mean, predatory lawsuits, frivolous litig
perspective when it comes to the tune of government than i do. i think you believe that government is the wherewithal for what we need in this country. i do not. i believe in private enterprise, private responsibility, but i thank you for your service. welcome for that service. i respect that she is a mother, a rancher, a small business person. i think she is campaigning in all three of those things they have a great deal of respect for what she did on a school board and a legislature. you are always putting yourself at risk. we have fundamental disagreements. the negative advertising, in one year and -- on you have to do is avoid watching television is not a bad option. what she just said is not true. i started a business in nebraska, and the first thing i had to do to start our business must get a permit from the city office, talk to the county, the state. i understand that government does not create jobs. i understand you've got to be careful with taxes and regulation to make that hpen. thats political rhetoric in my view, and it does not resemble the facts. she said it is diffu

. this chinese company is a huge company. it's almost entirely owned by the chinese government. in 2005, they tried to take over an oil company based in california. so big chinese, state-run company trying to take over a california company. this is the chinese government, a big business deal like that actually does have national security implications for us as a country. that's the kind of international business deal that's subject to review by something called the committee on foreign investments in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant

in afghanistan and no evidence that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. >> are you preparing for this fight? are you already stockpiling weapons and ammunition and getting yourself ready? yes, we are, we will definitely fight, he says. and what about the afghan government? it's meaningless here, they say. you think it's possible that the taliban will try and come back. yes, they will, he says. it makes a decade's work of american battles seem futile. it wasn't always like this. >> the united states military has begun strikes. >> at first, the war had momentum. and a clear purpose. al qaeda with bases in afghanistan attack the united states on 9/11. just three months later, the u.s. drove the taliban from power, al qaeda and osama bin laden were on the run. it was done with a few hundred cia officers, special forces, and air power. a quick victory. but not decisive. >> that was nbc's richard engel reporting. and
the government for a day. more importantly, we have our own buffett rule in massachusetts. when she has been talking about everybody paying higher taxes, she had a choice to pay higher taxes herself, and she chose not to do that. number three, all of her criticisms on me is i do not want to raise taxes. that is correct. i do not want to raise taxes on any american in the middle of recession. when i go to businesses, they do not say take all my money and bring it to washington. they say we have been taxed and regulated enough, and the only person here who is a fiscal conservative is me. >> let me break in here. we will have more of our discussion. we will take a break and be back with our debate in a few minutes. now our candidates in massachusetts continue their debate live from the university of massachusetts in lowell. >> we have at elizabeth warren and scott brown. we're talking about the economy and how to create jobs with concerned students here about job creation and this tough economy that you both are dealing with. i want to introduce mary hazel who has a question. please ask your qu
of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to the states, in this case, block grants that balance revenues and expenditures, and that is how we ever get out of this. giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practices, that is exactly what we will have. we will have some fabulous success and some horrible failure. failure of lincoln avoided, success will be emulated. that is how we will find our way out of this. host: gary johnson is with us from new mexico. he will be with us for about 40 more minutes. we will put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen as we take a look at the libertarian nominee and his race overall. there is a recent gallup poll
pay a nominal fee or something so they feel that they have small ownership in the government and maybe they won't take all the handouts so readily? >> i got an idea. let's help them get jobs so they can get a good paycheck so thaen they're good taxpayers. >> well done, mr. ryan. joining us from washington, julian epstein, who is a democratic strategist, and ken vogel, chief investigative reporter for polpolitico. paul ryan has conceded that mitt romney's 47% comments were inarticulate. they seem to acknowledge that the 47%, largely the elderly, working poor, veterans, but now ryan sounds as if he agrees with mitt. which is it? >> that's right. you could imagine john mccain in 2008 saying, wait a second, that 47% is made up of veterans who have paid their debt to society with blood literally. it's made up of mostly working people, most of that 47% are working americans, working middle class, working poor. >> hard working who earn less than $30,000 a year. >> or even $40,000 or $50,000 and many of those -- many of that 47% is made up of seniors. you know, this network is going to have a
. >> that is why we are holding the iranian government accountable and we will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> interesting as you know, the president is not doing any one-on-one bilateral meetings with any world leaders, including benjamin netanyahu. the white house had made clear that the prime minister is not actually in new york at the same time as the president. nonetheless, israeli officials have said that they have made clear they would like to go to washington at the end of the week to meet. they believe this is a critical time for the white house has suggested that that is not being added to the president's schedule. the president taking heat because he was on the show the view. he found time for that, taking a lot of heat for not meeting individually with world leaders as national security foreign policy moves back to the front burner of this presidential campaign. hanging over all of this is the question as to whether israel will launch a unilateral strike against iran before the u.s. election to stop the threat. megyn: ed henry, we are being told that
is a bunch of lazy bums and victims who depend on the government and he doesn't care about them. whatever it is that turned their candidate into the 2012 reincarnation of thurston howell except in this reincarnation thurston is mean, whatever it is that has done that it's just killing him in the polls in every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new hampshire on lake winnipesaukee. a few summers ago i was traching my grandchildren and children to town to get ice cream and we got into the docks and they were all full, looked around, there was no place to park so we stopped at the dock, they all jumped off and ran up the dock and i realized there was nobody in the boat to help me dock the boat. they just left me out there at sea. so, i finally found a place to park after about 20 minutes and i pulled in, i said who's going to drag the rope and i looked up and there w
't have a driver's license, a government-issued photo i.d. could get the michigan state identification card. then the state said that can be used to board airplanes. we need all sorts of forms of identification. then the state changed its mind and said we'll issue a voter i.d. card that's different. only if you can't get the other card. then they changed their mind on that. the judge said i can't be sure. even though the state has now cured a lot of these problems, i can't be sure enough people are going to be able to get the right kind of identification to allow this law to go into effect. i'm going to let the state continue to educate people about the need for photo i.d. i'm going to let the state ask for photo i.d. atle positive, but enjoin the part of the law that requires voters to have photo i.d. people wanted it all put on hold. the judge said i don't need to go that far. there is always the possibility the state could go back to the supreme court on this, but begin how skeptical the supreme court was when they looked at this a few weeks ago, i think it's over. that means that t
no matter what. who are dependent on government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to haek, to food, to housing, to you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> howard, i opened the show tonight with what we call our cold open. i said does obama like you? and there's a lot of people who are going to see that ad and say, i'm in that picture somewhere. i'm a veteran, i'm this kind of person, i'm that kind of person. am i in that list of 47%? the answer, i guess, is yes. >> well, the flip side of what chuck was talking about in terms of the still existent enthusiasm gap on the obama side, on the romney side i think mitt romney has kind of maxed out on the people who are going to vote for him because they're against obama. mitt romney's challenge in this upcoming debate and in the other debates is to show some sense of
they're victims, who believe the government has to care for them, who believes they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it, and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not to worry about those -- i'll never take care of them. they should take care responsibility and take care of themselves. >> you look at this analytical, only three or four breaks, romney would be ahead right now, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go back, i would say, to may or june at the earliest to come up with a time where you feel like romney was controlling the narrative, controlling the tempo of this campaign. and then, you're right, didn't catch a break. it starts with the health care ruling at the end of june that somehow goes obama's way
that people have -- have to be able to participate in their own governance. but i'm -- i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> he said the developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. yethyti bumps in the road. we had an ambassador assassinated, we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 pele have been killed in syria. these e not bumps in the road eseanlis, these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for a president who will shape events in the middle east not just be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> mike, we talk about how mitt romney's out of touch all the time. i would say a president saying that some of the problems inhe midd easre pshe road" is extraordinarily out of touch when you have a u.s. ambassador scraped off the streets of benghazi, 20,000 killed in syria. you've got israel, our closest ally in the middle east inopen, bacallerbafaet their leader and our leader. you can go around the entire region. it's mass chaos. troops getting gned down by s
that people have to be able to participate in their own governance, but i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps ins road. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah, thofls my reaction. bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. we had a muslim brotherhood elect a member -- elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 have been killed in syria. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives and developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east, not just be merciful or be at the mercy. >> the white house called those comments from candidate romney desperate and offensive but paul ryan also looking at foreign policy aimed to draw parallels between the obama administration and that of jimmy carter. >> turn on the tv and it reminds you of 1979 tay ruin but they're burning our flags and capitals all around the world. they're storming our embassies. we've lost four of our diplomats. and what is the signal that our government is sipdzing the r
. it turns out our government has been lying to us about civilians killed in broken strikes. i know shocker. but this is the result. >> one of the things we heard from several people is that they didn't know what america was before drones and now what they know of america is drones death% and terror. >> here's what we do on this show, whether we're going after republicans or democratics, we keep it real, and you know what time it is. it's go time. ♪ >> the president and michelle obama. >> hes loving, giving, open. >> our economy works the best when everybody gets a shot. >> it looks a little foolish on the view with the girls on the couch. >> there are going to be bumps in the road. >> the world needs american leadership, we do and we're going to bring it. >> a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> i think that ought to be a little bit of a red flag. >> our constitution protects the right to free speech. the future must not belong to those who slander the process of islam. >> i'd give the speech a c. it was a great big warm fuzzy blanket. >> unlike the seattle seahawk
the rights of ittings own people the iranian government continues to prop up a dictator in damascus and support terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate its nuclear program is peaceful. >> mitt romney also discussed foreign affairs today including iran, this morning at the clinton global initiative. >> today we face a world with unprecedented challenges and complexities. we should not forget and cannot forget that not far from here, a voice of unspeakable evil and hatred has spoken out, threatening israel, and the entire civilized world. we come together knowing the bitterness of hate is no match for the strength of love. >> joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and jeffrey goldberg, national correspondent for the atlantic. jeffery to you, did the president talk tough enough to iran to quiet the critics, including israel's benjamin netanyahu that he has not been tough and consistent enough on his policy towards iran? >> the language was sharp and not in front of
si germany and the japanese because the attack on liberty today is from our own government. that's one choice. or, more serious than the threat we face from the soviet union during the cold war. or all of the above. or serious but not as serious as the threats to liberty listed above. for all the communist pollsters, that's one of the choices. you were asked if you will pledge right now on this survey to vote on november 6th if you are physically able to do so. you have to fill in the bubble saying you're swearing to do it and you have to sign your name there to verify your pledge. and also please send ralph reed some money. will you send your best emergency freedom saving donation right now? ralph reed is going to spend $12 million this election cycle. that's a lot of postage for hilarious polls. i'm sure ralph reed himself is doing well in terms of the cut he's taking for this surveying that he's doing, but $12 million even minus the considerable fee, that's got to be a lot of money. that's a lot of comparing president obama to hitler and please sign here if you understand it.
in the interview. >> education is done at the state level. the federal government provides funding for special needs unions in america. mitt romney is so confused on this issue he actually made the case for the teachers in chicago today in the interview. >> education is done at the state level. the federal government provides funding for special needs students and for low-income students. >> it's just that easy, right? one of the main reasons the teachers went on strike for the first time in 25 years was because of resources and the lack of resources in the classroom. it's different throughout the city. they can't afford to cut to federal and state funding. they can't afford those cuts. that's exactly what would happen if a mitt romney became president of the united states. the romney/ryan plan, here's the list, folks. cut pell grants for more than nine million students, eliminate head start programs for two million children, and cut $5 billion in title one funding for low-income and special needs students. good plan? republicans want to cut funding for public education because, you see, they
